Slide 1

PLASMA – CATALYST OF COMBUSTION OF LOW-REACTIVE COALS The plasma technology seems to hold the highest promise among the alternative technologies available for solving the problems of combustion of low0reactive coals. This technology provides a substantial increase in cost effectiveness and improvement in environmental indicators of power-generating plants working with solid fuel. Plasmatron and its installation on a direct-flow coal torch Decrease in formation NOx and mechanical undercombustion

Slide 2

plasma processing of low-reactive coals Main principle of plasma-power technology is dramatic decrease in the required electric power Multiplication of capacity Plasma-jet reactor Plasma jet (10kW ) Coal torch (200 kW)

Slide 3

Optimal utilization of the steam-plasma effects, leading to a substantial increase in rates of gasification and combustion (10 and more times) of coal particles The scheme of a plasma-jet reactor Quartz pipe muffle Combined Plasma-coal torch Plasmatron Secondary air muffle furnace Plasmatron Feeder of a coal dust Control panel Power supply Water steam

Slide 4

Dramatic decrease in the required electric power (by an order of magnitude) provides real technical and economical preconditions for efficient and wide-scale application of this technology in power generation Using such combined plasma-coal torch devices, it is possible to realize different sophisticated energy fuel-utilization technologies. They include: plasma ignition of the coal-dust flame (fuel oil free kindling of boilers, lighting of the coal-dust flame, stabilization of the liquid slag yield in furnaces with liquid slag removal); electric-thermochemical preparation of fuel (ETCPF) for combustion; coal distillation; plasma-steam coal distillation, production of synthesis gas; integrated processing of low-grade solid fuels in plasma reactors; processing of coal production wastes – coal slime.

The average gain of manufacture of the solar electric power in the world with 1990 г on 2001 г has made 22 % a year. The nearest years higher rates of growth c corresponding escalating of manufacture highly purity solar silicon - from 65000 tons in 2001 г up to 350000 tons in 2010 are expected МВт The solar electric power

Manufacture of solar silicon Equilibrium output of silicon (temperature, pressure)

Slide 9

Manufacture of solar silicon According to thermodynamic calculations of 100 % decomposition of monosilane occurs already at 700 °C. Experimental data give higher value of temperature Т « 1000 °C, but in any case disintegration SiH4 occurs At temperatures a lot of smaller temperatures of fusion of silicon Тпл. Si = 1690 °C.

Slide 10

Machines of electroarc decomposition of monosilane should meet following requirements: 1. To provide a high degree of transformation of silicon in the condensed phase; 2. To provide necessary granulemetric structure of a received product; 3. To exclude pollution of received silicon by products of erosion of electrodes; 4. To have there is enough high efficiency and small power inputs.
